Default "Task Bar" = Alt + Esc

Please Login to Remove!

Sorry to repost a thread, but the old one was closed and I don't believe my question(s) were answered. It should be a quick one.

This is the closed one fyi: Alt-escape taskbar

I just have 2 simple questions, and for that matter, may have them answered. I am familiar with how to find that taskbar (alt + esc), but I can't seem to be able to do anything with it. Is it because "you can't" LOL it is just a list of recent apps.


A non BB issue that was mentioned if u are interested in answering.
(***And one person put in there about being on Windows and getting the same list by hitting alt + tab. I know a good bit about puters, but only use my computers with Logitech and Razer keyboards. I have never heard of that shortcut, alt + tab. Is that dictated by your keyboard OR is it what I read on Wikipedia something about being for an earlier version of windows until windows taskswitcherXP came along? ***)

Default

You can open and use any program listed in the "task bar" as you call it. It actually just a list of running programs. As you scroll through them, stopping on the program you desire will open it.

And yes, in windows, ALT-TAB opens the taskbar where you can scroll the the open apps just like on the BB. Stopping on one will open or bring to the foreground that application.
